New Delhi, Sep 03, 2018 : Though Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has been hitting out at the Modi government on various policy decisions off late, in a recent interview he dropped a bombshell.
By now, netizens are familiar with his bombastic vocabulary and humour, they probably arent aware that Tharoor also has a secret desire -- to hack into PM Modis social media accounts. Yes, you read it right.
During a recent interview with Firstpost on aspects related to social media, he was asked in a lighter vein that if given a chance, whose social media accounts would he like to hack into. Replying in the same vein, Tharoor said he would want to hack into the prime ministers social media accounts. The reason? Tharoor said it will allow him to tell the truth about the rhetoric the Modi government resorts to.
Imagine if I got on to hacking Narendra Modi’s account and managed to tell the truth about the rhetoric," Tharoor said.
Tharoor, who is known for his fluency in English, has often sent netizens scampering to the dictionary with his tweets. But in the same interview, Tharoor also took a quiz of millennial slangs and easily answered all the questions correctly.
The Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram disclosed that he was offered a role in a Salman Khan movie. "I can always cherish these moments. It was to play the role of an Indian foreign minister in a sequence and the advice I was given by a good friend was -- If you want to be the foreign minister, dont play the foreign minister, he said.
Tharoor also clarified about his appearance in film Andaz Apna Apna.
Tharoor had recently also initiated a #ProudToBeMalayali trend on Twitter. During a debate on Kerala floods, a TV anchor had called Malayalis the most shameless bunch of Indians. Defending his people, Tharoor wrote on Twitter: Given the disgraceful attacks on Malayalis in general by some petty minds, its time for us to stand up for ourselves. Lets evoke the reasons why we are #ProudToBeMalayali. Several people joined this trend and shared their reasons for being a proud Malayali.
